New TNB Complete Bike - Trickster 18.9


The Japanese brand TNB came up with the new Trickster 18.9 complete bike. It's not too expensive (around 650eur/usd) and probably a good option for beginners. The frame, fork and handlebars are original TNB parts. It's nice to see some good old crossed tubes. They are not dead yet ;-) Delirium distribution is selling the bike in Japan. Check their website for more information and the promo clip to see the bike in action.

Jamsado - Flatland Games in Bogota


Remember the Jamsado poster? The actual contest was even more funny. Because of the weather there wasn't much time and the guys made the best out of the situation by having a couple of fun contests to get those sponsor goodies in the hands of the riders. IGI, Tienda Flat and Fade Footwear supported the event.

THE GAMES:
- KICK BIKE , 5 rounds with 5 finalists and one finals to know the champion who won FADE shoes
- SCUFF JAM, the person who could hold a scuffing trick the longest to win a pair of FADE shoes
- HANG IN THERE , the longest HANG 5 for a pair of IGI SWEETSPOT pedals
- KOREAN ARM WRESTLING to win final prize ; a pair of IGI MICROPHONE PEGS

Enjoy the video! That looked like a fun day despite the rain!

Mateus Beckmann - Video Bike Check


Let's take a closer look at Mateus bike! If you know his riding then you know that this bike has to handle a lot of punishment ;-) The video proves that, besides the bikes you get to see a bunch of flatland and street riding. English subtitles would have been perfect but the close-up shots of the bike are good, so you can see what's what.

Alexis Desolneux Interview by Roy Christopher


Roy Christopher who describes himself as a write and scientist sent us a link to an interview with Alexis Desolneux which he did for his personal website. Apparently he was just looking for a new frame when he discovered his fascination with Heresy: "After watching all of their videos and finding out everything I could about the brand and the riders behind it, I built up my own Heresy frame with as many of their parts as I could get. Given my fast fandom, I knew I needed to talk to their leader."

AFA Round 1 and Scoring System


Only 2 weeks until the first round of this year's AFA series! We saw their new promo clip on IG and found some updated information on their website. You can find all the details in the event section: AFA Round 1.

The format is going to be best of 2 runs with no finals. The scoring system of the series has been simplified as requested by the riders: "Each placing is worth a pre-defined number of points. We add up all the points at the end of the year and that's your standing". You can find a scoring table on afabmx.com 

Good luck to all the riders for round 1!
